    I’ve destroyed the person I was supposed to be

    I used to have a lot of friends, I used to openly talk to people, I used to like going places, I used to feel like I fit in with people and their conversations.

    Hi guys... so to give you some insight into my story, when I was 14 years old I started dating a guy who I would continue to date for the next 5 years.
